The psychological principles that govern individual decision making produce predictable reversals of preferences when the same decision problem is framed in different ways. Inconsistencies are illustrated in choices involving monetary outcomes, both hypothetical and real, and in policy questions that pertain to the loss of human lives. Our analysis questions the descriptive adequacy of the standard rational model and highlights the dependence of the normative theory of choice on the psychology...

A constructive approach to the analysis of judgement and choice maintains that the decision maker does not always have well-define preferences and beliefs. Instead, they are often constructed in the elicitation process. This approach is used to explain and interpret a variety of phenomena that violate the classical theory of rational choice. It also leads to the formulation of psychological principles that govern judgment and choice. The present report summarizes three research projects...

The concept of representativeness and the conditions in which it can be used to explain intuitive predictions and probability judgments are discussed. Four cases of representativeness are distinguished that refer to the relations between a value and a variable; an instance and a category; a sample and a population; an effect and a cause. The principles of representativeness differ significantly from the laws of probability. In particular, specificity can increase the representativeness of an...

Approximation orders of shift-invariant subspaces generated by the shifts of one compactly supported function are considered. In that course, explicit approximation maps are constructed. The approach avoids quasi- interpolation and applies to stationary and non-stationary refinements. The general results are specialized to box spline spaces, to obtain new results on their approximation orders.

Alternative descriptions of a decision problem often give rise to different preferences, contrary to the principle of invariance that underlies the rational theory of choice. Violations of this theory are traced to the rules that govern the framing of decisions and the psychophysical principles of evaluation embodied in prospect theory. Invariance and dominance are obeyed when their application is transparent and often violated in other situations. Because these rules are normatively essential...

We study in this paper certain types of bases for shift-invariant subspaces. Our primary objective is to connect among three important families of basis sets: shift-invariant sets. Weyl-Heisenberg sets, and affine (wavelet) sets. The present paper is the first in a series of three, and is concerned with the basic theory of shift-invariant bases for the shift-invariant spaces. The two papers, (RS1) and (RS2), will focus on the applications of the theory developed here to Weyl-Heisenberg and...

Research on intuitive judgment shows that base rate data are often neglected or underweighted in individual predictions. Some evidential variables that control the impact of base rate information are reviewed. It is shown that casual base rates affect judgments while incidental base rates of equal diagnostic import are commonly superseded by more specific evidence. The links between the base rate problem and the question of internal versus external attributions of behavior in social psychology...

This paper develops a probabilistic choice model, called Preference Tree or Pretree, which describes choice as a covert hierarchical elimination process. Each alternative is represented as a measurable collection of aspects and the entire ensemble of aspects is assumed to have a tree structure. At each stage one selects an aspect (i.e., a branch of the tree) with probability that is proportional to its measure and eliminates all the alternatives that do not belong to the selected branch. The...

The major themes of the research supported under this grant are the discrepancy between normative and descriptive theory and the constructive nature of decision and judgement. In contrast to the classical theory that treats preferences as given and describes choice as a maximization process, the present approach holds that preferences and judgements are often constructed in the elicitation process. Furthermore, these constructions are contingent on the framing of the problem, the method of...

The present report summarizes two projects. The first project, which focuses on riskless choice, involves a series of experiments that demonstrate the phenomenon of loss aversion: losses and disadvantages have greater impact on preference than gains and advantages. the evidence shows that choice depends on the status quo or reference level, and that changes of reference point often lead to reversals of preference. To account for these observations, we develop a reference-dependent theory of...

In contrast to the normative theory of evidence, where the impact of data is determined solely by their informativeness, this paper develops the thesis that the impact of evidence on intuitive judgements of probabilities depends critically on whether it is perceived as causal, diagnostic or incidental. The first part of the paper shows that people assign greater impact to causal data than to diagnostic data of equal informativeness. When the same datum has both causal and diagnostic...

Any difference between the various results where the same compound nucleus is formed must be due to differences in energy content and possible...

A method is devised for treating the transfer of a light particle such as a hydrogen atom or a proton between two heavy particles, for the case of a collinear symmetric reaction AH + A yield A + HA. Polar coordinates (rho, theta) with origin at the origin of the usual mass-weighted skewed-angle potential energy contour plot are employed to simplify the calculation. Symmetric and antisymmetric vibrationally adiabatic states are obtained at each rho. They provide an effective potential for the...

Recent photoelectron spectroscopic studies in a (2+1) REMPI of Nitrogen Oxide via the Rydberg D2 sigma+ state have revealed anomalous ionic rotational branching ratios. We have performed ab initio calculations of these branching ratios and find that the molecular nature of the ionization continuum plays an essential role in the dynamics. Even though the bound orbital is very atomic-like (98% p-like), the photoelectron continuum wavefunction is quite sensitive to the non-spherical nature of the...

In this paper we study strictly positive definite functions on the unit sphere of the m-dimensional Euclidean space. Such functions can be used for solving a scattered data interpolation problem on spheres. Since positive definite functions on the sphere were already characterized by Schoenberg some fifty years ago, the issue here is to determine what kind of positive definite functions are actually strictly positive definite. The study of this problem was initiated recently by Xu and Cheney,...

The diabatic representation is constructed with the aid of the adiabatic one discussed in an earlier paper. The treatment can...

The theory of RS2 is applied to yield compactly supported tight affine frames (wavelets) in L2(Rd) from box splines. The wavelets obtained are smooth piecewise polynomials on a simple mesh; furthermore, they exhibit a wealth of symmetries, and have a relatively small support. The number of 'mother wavelets', however, increases with the increase of the required smoothness. Two bivariate constructions, of potential practical value, are highlighted. In both, the wavelets are derived from...

Preference can be inferred from direct choice between options or from a matching procedure in which the decision maker adjusts one option to match another. Studies of perferences between two-dimensional options (e.g., public policies, job applicants, benefit plans) show that the more prominent dimension looms larger in choice than in matching. Thus, choice is more lexicographic than matching. This finding is viewed as an instance of a general principle of compatibility: the weighting of input...
